So you need to reset your service lights, but don't know how.  Well there are a few ways it can be done.

First, you could buy a tool to reset them, but why, you can certainly do it for free.  You could have the dealer reset them, uhmmm lol..

So you want to know how to do it for free?  Well there are 2 ways, but in my experience the way you reset them depends on your model year...OR should I say when you had your instrument cluster replaced..lol.

Anyway, the point I'm getting at is there is 2 ways you can reset them, and it is in my experience if you have a new cluster that was flashed you can reset the service lights via the instrument cluster.  I'm going to cover both ways because you, like me, may not be able to reset them via the diagnostic port under the hood.

Please Click On Any Picture Below To Enlarge That Picture.
If you want to try and reset it via the diagnostic port in the engine compartment, the pic indicates where it is and the description on how to do it is as follows:
  • With the ignition in the off position
  • Put a wire between pins 7 and 19.  The pins are labeled inside the cover
  • Now turn the ignition to position 2, the run position, but DO NOT start the engine.
  • After just a couple seconds in position 2, jump out and run over or have your helper remove the jumper wire.  If you wait eight to ten seconds, it will do an Inspection reset, which you may or may not want.  You do not want a full inspection reset if you ONLY changed the oil

To make your jumper cable, just take a piece of really think gauge wire and you can bend it in a "U" to match up with the pins.

Now, the easy way...
  • Ignition in OFF position
  • Press and Hold the trip odometer button [left button, see pic] while you turn the key to position 1
  • Keep the button depressed [about 5 secs] until you see "Oil Service" or "Inspection" with "Reset" or "Re" in the display
  • Let go of the button
  • Now press the button again and hold for approximately 5 secs. until "Reset" or "Re" flashes
  • Let go of the button
  • Now while the display is flashing, briefly press the button again to reset the Service Interval. After the display has shown the new interval you should see "END SIA" for about 2 secs
Now turn the key to the off position, start the car and your inspection lights should be reset:
